patient’s information or performed procedure while the rest of the pathology results would be kept off of the blockchain. The link embedded in a block would act as a pointer to an off the blockchain API that allow access to the entire test results. The “immutabilty” characteristic of the blockchain can also be in conflict with existing legislations such as the new European GDPR 11 which aims to give all citizens the ability to govern their personal data including the right for every citizen to request an institution to delete his / her personal data. V. F INAL R EMARKS This paper presented a discussion on the adoption of blockchain to support software-intensive healthcare systems. Preliminary results of a literature review show that, despite the advances that have been achieved, many challenges still remain to make blockchain a panacea for managing EHRs. We have reported the set of platforms that have been specially created and tailored for health systems and EHRs purposes, besides pointing for future directions of research. In a forthcoming paper, we intend to extend the results and provide deeper details on the architectures of the platforms and the challenges to address all the inherent characteristics of blockchain on those systems.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
